    Fleming F. , Jul 5, 2020 :
    Hi everyone,

    After last week's 3-day holiday, this week was particularly long for the team here at HQ. It’s also been one month since I joined OnePlus as trainee, making it the perfect time for my first Weekly Update. Last week, so many things happened, so let me take this chance to share my favorite stories with you.

    The one thing on everyone's mind is OnePlus Nord. An all-new series for OnePlus, OnePlus Nord is aimed at making it easier for more people to embrace OnePlus and find out what it means to Never Settle. This week, we finally unveiled the official name. There's a lot more to come though, so be sure to keep an eye on our brand-new Instagram account, where we're dropping an exclusive documentary series. By the way, I designed the banner picture for Nord, do you like it?


    On July 2, we introduced our new OnePlus TV series in India, a smarter TV with a smarter price. What’s more, we've invited the TV team to join us in our next AMA. So, get those questions ready if you’re curious about the new TV series.

    20 lucky gamers engaged in a Fortnite match with Ali-A, one of the biggest Fortnite players in gaming. A lot of players couldn't pass up the chance to play with a Youtuber and show off their brilliant skills in-game. We can't wait to see their highlight reels. How did you feel about this event? I used to play a lot of PUBG, but Fortnite's been growing on me, which mobile game do you prefer?

    Addition Magazine has been growing in popularity ever since we released the very first edition late last year. A lot of you have been asking for a way to get your hands on a copy of Addition Magazine Issue 2. Since your help has been key to making our magazine a success, what better way to give away our latest magazine than through a new survey? Share your feedback directly with us for the chance to win your own copy.

    Shot on OnePlus July started this week! I shared some of my own visual summer stories there, don’t miss it. I really like the summer vibe, and it makes for great photography. I hope you'll enjoy the season, too. This theme will provide you plenty of opportunities to be creative, so I hope you can share your photos and stories with us. For me, a slice of watermelon (or two) always adds a ton of charm to the season, and, funnily enough, @Amanda W. brought us a big, sweet watermelon this afternoon!




    Here's a sneak peek at Ideas 2.0. @Trista W. is working on improving it! Keep your eyes out for more information soon. User-driven is our main focus day in day out, and we can't wait to hear your brilliant ideas.

    Like many of you, I’m a OnePlus fan, so it’s been really cool to join OnePlus and work with the OnePlus Community. The environment at OnePlus headquarters is both filled with tech and very charming. You can not only find OnePlus phones everywhere, but also see Amanda’s flowers and Trista’s duck doll. Quack quack.



    Our talented colleagues can even draw a picture for you! Guess who the girl and the handsome man in these drawings are? What do you think about having an AMA about OnePlus headquarters and organizing a live-stream for it?

    As some of you may know, I'm still in my senior year of college, so I had to write essays after work, and edit some video clips as my homework. Here’s a short video from La la land, edited by me.

    I hope you like it. Some more good news is that we’re working on improving the video capabilities of the Community in the future, so make sure to share your creative ideas on video shooting and editing with us!

    That's all we've got to share this week. Have a nice weekend ;)

    Weekly updates lately do not include any updates regarding phones and update timelines.
    OnePlus had promised to re-enable the photochrome lens for India by June end. 1st week of July is done, but yeah, weekly update with no hint of anything. Keep this up, you're gonna lose a lot of customers. Just building hype for product launches doesn't do much if you don't provide proper product support.
    I miss the old OnePlus 3t days when OnePlus used to actually communicate and listen to the community.

    Heya @Fleming F.
    thanks for the lovely insights and recap..! :)

    I love watermelons but I wonder what's inside those OnePlus boxes next to Amanda ??? ;)

    Really like those futuristic white/green office chairs they look very comfy...
    And those cloth samples get me looking forward to your next creations @Amanda W....:D

    Reading between the lines I see TWS and an interaction with Avicii on Insta...?
    I would say that "sounds" promising.. :D

    Have a great Sunday y'all...!!
